'DEAR JOHN' A PERFECT VALENTINE MOVIE
Dear John is a romantic drama starring Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried. The film is an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' novel of the same name. Nicholas Sparks is also the author of Message in a Bottle, A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, Nights in Rodanthe, and The Last Song.
"Dear John" tells the story of John Tyree (Channing Tatum), a young soldier home on leave, and Savannah Curtis (Amanda Seyfried), the idealistic college student he falls in love with during her spring vacation. Over the next seven tumultuous years, the couple is separated by John’s increasingly dangerous deployments. While meeting only sporadically, they stay in touch by sending a continuous stream of love letters overseas--correspondence that eventually triggers fateful consequences.
"Dear John" unexpectedly ended the seven-week reign of "Avatar" at the weekend box office in North America on Sunday.
